    G-L42 Haplogroup

    Hello all,
    I recently got my DNA test results and my Y-Haplogroup is G-L42. I was born and raised in Turkey but my father's family migrated from Mostar, Bosnia & Herzegovina in early 1900s. I always thought I would have some Eastern European genes but this subclade seems to be mostly in Central Europe.

    Greets. G-L42 is most common SNP of all G2a's in the Western Balkan. To be precise it's L42>YSC33 subclade. It possibly arrived here with some Celtic population in the time of the Urnfield culture, since our lowest known snp is YSC33* (fow now). Here it's most common among Serbs, especially in the eastern Herzegovina region near Trebinje, some areas in Montenegro and among Krajina Serbs (which roots are in Herzegovina). Are you tested on FTDNA or some other company?

    Here we are on current L42 tree.

    Hi, thanks for the information. I tested through both Ancestry and 23AndMe. Ancestry does not provide Haplogroup information but I was able to get an estimate for my Haplogroup by downloading the raw DNA data from Ancestry and uploading the file to some web site.
    Now the question is how to find a genetic service (free or reasonable price) which can determine what branch under G-L42 I belong to?

    I used the predictor on this site geneticgenealogist.net /2016/01/how-to-get-ydna-haplogroup-from.html but I get different results when I use the raw data file for Ancestry and 23AndMe. 23Andme raw data file gives me G2a3b1a2a1a1~1
    G-YSC0000033 as the suggested terminal subclade whereas Ancestry gives G-L42. But since using the raw file from Ancestry involves an extra step of converting it to the 23Andme format, I believe 23Andme file is more accurate.

    I think best solution for You, considering you live in USA is test at FTDNA. Not just because they test markers, but you will also can see your matches and join G-L497 project, where project administrators will help You.
